Lana - Gateway to the South

Lana is a modern and family-friendly market town with a high quality of life and a sound approach to modernization. Set in the middle of the Adige Valley Lana is conveniently located between the cities of Merano and Bolzeno and is a popular starting point for hiking tours, e.g. to the adjacent Ulten Valley.

With its nearly 40 churches and monasteries as well as the convent of the German Order, Lana has always been a place of historical and religious importance. Since the Middle Ages the fortresses of Brandis, Leonburg and Braunsberg characterise the panorama of the village. Nowadays cultural and historic sites are harmoniously connected by picturesque and old walking paths lined by modern sculptures and art works.
